Second man in custody after Mountie run down by ATV

A second man has been charged after an Alberta Mountie’s leg was broken when he was hit by an ATV in a troubled aboriginal community south of Edmonton.

HOBBEMA — A second man has been charged after an Alberta Mountie’s leg was broken when he was hit by an ATV in a troubled aboriginal community south of Edmonton.

RCMP say the constable was responding to reports of shots being fired at a home on the Louis Bull reserve townsite near Hobbema.

Police say the officer had stepped out of his squad car to stop a man driving an all-terrain vehicle and allege the driver accelerated and struck him.

On Wednesday, Shawn Roasting, 21, turned himself in at the Hobbema detachment, and was to make a court appearance Thursday.

Shawn Roasting and his 29-year-old brother, Clinton Roasting, are both charged with discharging a firearm with intent to endanger life.

Clinton Roasting faces an additional charge of criminally negligent operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm.

The four reserves in the Hobbema area have been plagued with gang-related shootings and other violence in recent years.
